I am a BIG fan of all things Tommy Bahama, I like the look and the hatchback is a great choice for it.

I have to slap myself and cry over this one and the new 33 Classic twin. I am getting ready to retire and my, now ten year old prepped $$$ Safari is nice and only been out of state three times- twice by me and, the wallet says NO. At least I have the TB towels! My bricks and sticks house has a designed Ethan Allen/Tommy Bahama plantation decor! Oh well, island life- RELAX.

Bay Area Airstream got one in yesterday, saw it today when I picked our trailer up from service. A few pretty cool touchs, including a tropical motif in the head.

Was just thinking that the head in this unit would have to be called, "The jungle room."

Oh fiddle-faddle. The tropical theme is redundant and boring.

I have been pleading for an aviation-themed Airstream for years. Makes sense, considering its design history.

Show it off at Oshkosh. They would sell!

The tank sensors, weather conditions, voltmeter, etc, should look like a panel from a Grumman Goose.

Same with all switches throughout coach.

Oxblood leather with sheepskins.

But you're the only one who'll want the green interior anticorrosion paint!

One of the beauties of Airstream ownership and design is that you can have any interior motif that your little hearts desire. Why wait for Airstream to read your minds? Redesign and modify away. For possibility $5k you can duplicate the look. Personally I like the limited edition looks of both the TB and Pendleton. They had no problem selling every Pendleton and the same will apply to the TBs.

Tommy Bahama model is real

I have no doubt that you are right. I would have preferred the Pendleton to the TB, but they will both sell out. Say, any thoughts on those leather handles for doors and drawers? Not loving that, but again, we do want to see one in person. We're always interested in what AS is doing.

Typically outstanding video from Patrick at Colonial. This is a lengthy, in-depth walk through of the new model. Great job, as usual. This one is nearly an hour long.

If you want a shorter intro video for the TB, here's another video from Colonial. This one is roughly 20 minutes.

May not be for everybody....

This Special Edition looks fantastic... I thank Jackson Center for coming up with new ideas and themed TT's and now an Interstate. Not sure that the IS has enough towing capacity to haul the Tommy but it would be so COOL!!!

I feel very lucky that we were able to get one of the Pendleton's (#62) which is now sitting out in front of our new home in Santa Fe. My electrician is hard at work trenching and laying conduit for a 50 amp outlet at the far edge of our driveway, as I write this. Since taking delivery in early April we've towed her over 11K miles (tracked by the F-150's computer). The 2015 Supercrew Lariat V-8 gasser did a remarkable job of towing the AS from Austin TX to Santa Fe last weekend. Love the Hensley hitch in the wind. And wind we did have!!! 40 mph crosswind on I-40 with gusts to who knows how high. It was, without a doubt the heaviest wind I have ever driven in. Ever!!!!

So the new place is right at 7K feet elevation, and I may have felt a slight loss of power but overall the beast did a fairly good job. I do intend to add an F-250 to the fleet at some point. Just as an aside, when we drove the F-150 back to Austin two weeks ago, empty, she made the 720 mile trip on one 36 gallon tank of gas. Had a nice tailwind and made the trip in one day.

I can't wait to see the Tommy B in person. The rear hatch lives on!!!

Mark
